To start off the second incarnation of this thread, here are some photos of Calgary's West Springs neighbourhood. A medium-density(2007 people/km2) suburb on the outer edge of Western Calgary.

And this building is under construction as part of the Live/Work development across the street. The development includes a retail mall, office building, a mixed use office/residential/retail building, and this residential/retail building. This particular building is called Eighty5nine.

I was going to say that I like Swift Current, it's got a very Midwestern feel that I've always found appealing.

College Quarter is a long term development project by the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon. It combines new student residences with sports and academic facilities, an arts and cultural centre, and commercial and mixed-use development to help integrate it into the adjacent neighbourhood. The College Quarter Greenway links it all to the main campus.

The first buildings, the Undergraduate Student Residences, and Graduate House, along with the first phase of the Greenway represent the first steps in this project. See College Quarter Master Plan.

What's most exciting is that this new urban street has begun to emerge where only a couple of years ago there was just an open field:

Old St. John's from Destination St. John's on Facebook:

Amazing how small it is. You can see the entirety of downtown as well as about half of the old area of the city, with rowhouses and so on. It extends to the left and below this view. So tiny. :D Hard to believe how much... history and life... can be in such a small space.

So weird how Signal Hill is almost completely bare while the Southside hills are fully forested.

Indeed, I had no clue of just how compact the whole arrangement was.
